Floral fashion for Spring

It’s that time of year when I get inspired by all the beautiful fashions in the stores and on-line. I like to browse and see what’s around, then I’ll select a few pieces and decide from there. I tend to choose up to ten items and then narrow it down to say, four or five that I’d like to add to my wardrobe. From the selection, I think the colours are extremely pretty with a combination of pastel and bright shades and they all sit perfectly with black, don’t you think?

In this blog post I’ve selected the few items of floral fashion for spring, including a couple of accessories too i.e. sandals and earings. They all have some sort of detailing, whether that be a printed pattern, embroidery or beaded embellish. You can dress the fashion pieces up with heels, or for a daytime look, put on some flats with a pair of jeans. There’s so much choice, depending on when you can see yourself wearing them.

If you love florals as much as I do, because they’re so wearable and never go out of fashion, then why not check out some more floral inspiration here.

Happy shopping and I’d love to see what floral finds you see or buy.

Is there someone who you really admire and is an inspiration to you? Well I have been a huge fan of Aitch’s work for some time, and recently, I have been drooling over her fashion print patterns for Sandra Mansour’s autumn and winter, 2016-2017 collection. Sandra’s fashion range is stunning and I have my eye on a few pieces. I would seriously love to be able to produce pattern designs for a clothing range. That is one of my ultimate goals! To me, Aitch is such an inspiring artist.

Aitch takes inspiration for her work from a variety of sources. These include what she sees on her travels, naturalistic illustrations, native art, childhood memories, legends & folklore,  and many more. She creates gorgeous patterns and illustrations for clients worldwide.

In the main, what I love about her work is her loose yet controlled, painterly style and use of bright colours combined with black.  Her work consists of bold shapes with watercolour. Aitch’s work is striking and very distinctive in appearance. In this blog post, I want to share with you a range of my favourite pieces. I’m sure you’ll recognise some of her illustrations and love them as much as I do!
